About Rustic Handmade
Chris Blatchly, the man behind Rustic Handmade, shares in Skinnyfatties’ vision of recycling and refashioning. Blatchly takes remnant woods from discarded furniture materials. After that, he shapes the timber treasures into designer quality tie clips.
Skinnyfatties already offers personal tie tailoring and the world’s first online tie builder system. The partnership between Skinnyfatties and Rustic Handmade brings a much anticipated tie accessory to the online store.
Recycled tie clips offerings
The tie clip will be offered in three types of woods, all natural, all repurposed, and super fashionable that would make Don Draper jealous!
- Black Walnut
- Sapele Mahogany
Each piece of wood and its clip is appropriately cut, finished, and assembled by hand in the USA. With these three tie clip additions, Rustic Handmade accentuates the uniqueness of refashioned tailored ties, and embellish their look.
Customers rave about the touch of class these clips add to your daily outfit. Men might not have all the elements women can add to their ensemble. No doubt that these clips definitely highlight the funkiest part of a man’s attire.
Rustic Handmade Tie Clips are sold at $15 each. It includes free shipping worldwide. Plus, a portion of each purchase goes to benefit Career Gear. Career Gear is an organisation building strong families and communities by empowering men who are low-income to overcome barriers and achieve self-sufficiency.
In 2012, Joshua Adam Brueckner found himself unemployed and out of change to buy new interview clothing. He got creative and re-tailored his wide neckties. Fed-up with the unforgiving job market, Brueckner scrapped the interview schedule and began running Skinnyfatties, a one-stop tie-tailoring online shop for every guy. His business grew thanks to his popular Instagram feed and word-of-mouth marketing. While Brueckner might be growing, all tailoring operations happen in Brooklyn.
